I’ve been hoping for this book for years. This is a story of lived experience filled with invitation for the reader to consider a hopeful, centered way forward in living their own faith experience. Think kind encouragement from a friend who’s been there more than a bossy formula from a removed theorist. This book is the kind of challenge that invites response instead of defensiveness, and opens up space to guide with questions instead of directives.
I’ve wanted to hear more of Aaron Niequist’s story of what practice looks like lived out for years now, and I’m grateful this book is in the world now, answering and asking these questions, and pointing me toward more tools and writers and resources.
I may or may not check Amazon periodically for books that I know are coming, so I ended up preordered this as soon as I could last January, before the cover and probably before you're actually meant to order. I am on the launch team for The Eternal Current, which means I got to read the book early on my Kindle and I get a free hardcover. The book pictured here was paid for with my own cash money, though, long before I knew I’d be on the launch team. @aaronieq #eternalcurrent
